Reginal writes,

What material is the Protect-A-Bed Box Spring encasement made of?

I do not want to tear it on my metal frame. I am also wondering if the Climb Up Interceptors would stop bedbugs from crawling up my bed?


The Protect-A-Bed Box Spring is bed bug proof and is made from a polyester/cotton blend.  The box spring encasements come with pads to place on the corners and rough edges of the metal frame to help prevent tearing.  You can also add additional foam or other materials in the shelf of the metal frame where the box spring fits to help prevent any tears. We recommend that you have someone else help you place this on the box spring to prevent tears.  The Climb-Up Interceptors work with most beds with normal feet or wheels on the bottom of the supports and will trap bedbugs that try to crawl up the legs of the bed.
